Directions

Check Pressure Gauge

After shipping the pressure gauge may not read '0' as a result of spring compression during shipping. To re-set the press, simply release and remove the top locks and allow the springs to decompress.

Do not store the press with springs compressed.

The springs and pressure gauge strip are designed to work together for proper pressing weight.

Recognizing Proper Pressing Weight

The proper amount of weight for pressing should be specified in each cheese making recipe. However, this can sometimes lead to over or under pressing, due to the final cheese moisture or fat content of the curds.

Excessive cloudy/milky whey or even butterfat leaking with the draining whey or on the cheese surface when turning, are signs of over pressing. Higher fat cheese requires less weight in early pressing stages when butterfat is still in a liquid state.

Under pressing will result in unconsolidated curds in the final cheese. This can be identified with open curd spaces on the rind or excessive open spaces in the cheese body.

A tight smooth rind with open space in the cheese body can be from applying excessive press too soon. This would seal the surface and trap moisture inside. This is usually accompanied by a cheese leaking moisture in the aging room.

Cheese Press Heaven

I am extremely happy with the cheese press! No more hanging buckets of water and the clean up is so easy. The stainless steel dish keeps everything dry. It is easy to operate. I have been making cheeses for five years now and your products and wisdom have never let me down!

I'm so Happy with My Cheese Press

After a year of balancing weights on wobbly curds, I finally broke down and got the press. I couldn't be happier! Easy to use and achieve even consistent pressure.

Works wonderfully!

We ordered this press for convenience. My wife and I are very busy, so we were looking for a press that is easy to clean, already assembled, could easily drain into our sink, and wouldn't be an eye sore in our kitchen... This press has delivered on all aspects. Upon receipt, we opened the package and began pressing 3.5 pounds of cheddar, it worked wonderfully.
